Bashing Governor Palin: Is Keith Olbermann an Idiot?

I’m not sure if MSNBC's Keith Olbermann is an idiot, but I think is it an interesting line of inquiry. Calling someone an idiot is such a classic put down, as long as you aren’t insulting the idiots out there. Still, I’m not calling Keith Olbermann an idiot in those words but just asking a simple question. Normally, I eschew writing what sounds like a personal attack, but I just can’t help myself this time… So let’s get to the business at hand. Is Keith Olbermann an idiot?

Olbermann seems to have a thing for Governor Sarah Palin that defies explanation. He constantly trashes her background and abilities. He is obsessed with putting her down and lampooning her every statement. Just look at his website. Palin this and Palin that, and there is feature entitled, Aunt Sarah’s Moose Stew. Is Olbermann obsessed with Sarah Palin?

Half of Olbermann’s show yesterday on MSNBC was devoted to trashing Senator McCain and Governor Palin. Ironically, Olbermann used to be a sportscaster on ESPN, who got too big for his britches. Now he’s broadcasting pseudo-journalism on MSNBC, which is watched by up to two dozen homes in California and New York. Yes, better add one home: mine. Does it matter what Keith Olbermann broadcasts to over two dozen American homes?

I watch Keith Olbermann’s show when I want to feel like the smartest man in the world. He’s like a uninformed version of Anderson Cooper blended with an unfunny version of Jon Stewart. Does he have any training in journalism, economics, or political science? He graduated from Cornell though… What’s up with that? Let’s make fun of where Keith went to college. High above Cayuga’s waters there’s an awful smell! Ha Ha! Is Cornell University taking full responsibility for Keith Olbermann’s journalistic prowess?

What did Keith Olbermann not know about being a journalist and when did he not know it? Let’s get some answers to these questions about whether Keith Olbermann is ready to serve one heartbeat away from the king of know-it-all journalists on MSNBC, Chris Matthews.

I have one question:

Why on God's green earth do you watch Olberkid?

Hi Larry,

I watch Olbermann to see what I shouldn't be thinking...

That would be one of those jobs (like the guy that pumps our septic tank) where I am glad somebody wants to do it.

Except I understand why the septic tank needs to be pumped.

Olbermann is obviously obsessed with Sarah Palin.

He's not an idiot....He's a patriot.
Anyone who would support a dying old senile man and an extremist 2nd rate stripper is the idiot.

Not sure which is worse: Idiot or coward.

I guess I'll take idiot.

Got some proof of the "stripper" thing? Might be handy if the court asks you for it.

Olbermann is not a patriot. He is just another media idiot with a microphone, employable in no other way... Also, Olbermann is obsessed with Sarah Palin; he can't stop talking about her. The amazing thing about this race is that Governor Palin is far more qualified for President than Barack Hussein Obama (bin Laden).

Has anybody ever seen Keith Olbermann and Andrew Sullivan in the same room at the same time?

Just asking.
